Mining for gold…

So as I’m processing the photos from MomoT’s wedding, I found this gem…

Bride’s Family

Yup.  That’s my boy.  Lil’Chicano, mining for gold.  and big brother GeekBoy looks like he just can’t believe what is happening.

This is taking longer than I had originally thought, but the results are awesome.  I got some really great shots.  At the moment, I’ve got a handful of Pre-cermony shots left.  Then I’ll skip ahead to post-ceremony, bounce back into the ceremony, skip to the reception, and last ones will be the rehersal shots from the day before.

Plus, you know they are ready for formal lessons again when the 6 year old, who claims to hate lessons, says, “Mom, when are we starting school again?”  Hmmm….  Bored much?  Me thinks so.  Although, despite what he thinks, the learning never stops at Casa del Yuriar.   DH complimented me for being able to work lessons into daily life without the kids even realizing they were learning.  That is a skill I learned from my own mother, who would use every TV show or movie as a life lesson lecture.  Seriously, we could not get through a 2 hour movie without at least 3 lectures about how the characters were handling situations and whatnot.  Awesome…  At the time, it really pissed me off.  But now, I do it to my kids with everything, not just movies.  Snack time is a math lesson, daily conversations become grammar lessons (that’s “taught” honey, not “teached”), a walk around the block becomes a science lesson…  It goes on and on.

I’m tired and worn.  Processing takes so much out of me mentally that I usually wind up crashing if I spend more then 20 minutes or so.  Doesn’t leave much left for blogging or scrapping or even functioning.  I’ve got so much on my plate that I need to be able to think about – breaking up fights, lesson plans, refereeing disputes, balance the books,  handle the kids, did I mention breaking up the fights?  *S*  Not to mention that it’s time to start planning for the holidays, and I need to get the family calendars done (I’m doing one for each side of the family this year)…  So I’ll either be really quiet for the next few weeks (what else is new?)  or I’ll be bloggin’ up a storm to release the stress and pressure.  We’ll see.
